New Tools Were Last Added: 2016-12-09

Update 2016-12-09 Greetings and Happy Holidays! I apologize for the long absence of tool updates. This is an extremely busy time of the year around our house, as I am sure it is for all of you. I have been busy out in the woods and in the yard preparing for winter. We have almost got enough wood put up for next winter, but it is close and the snow is coming soon. The kids also keep us busy with all sorts of holiday activities at school. That leaves not too much time for tools I am sorry to say. I added a few dozen new items to the list today. I hope to have two more big updates before the year is over, one update per week over the next two weeks if all goes as planned. I hope you find something you like. Thanks for reading!

Excellent Small Trammel Point Set.
I'm pretty sure these are a Stanley no. 1 trammel points. They are unmarked, as all were, and have the distinctive Stanley design. They are used just like a divider, but on a larger scale.

Please note- I realized after I took the photos that the points are not even lengths.. I've fixed that and they now match.

Early British 3/4in Dado Molding PLane.
This plane cuts a 3/4in dado, a very desirable size among workers. It's clean and crisp and has a great patina. Both the blade and nicker are in great shape.

The maker's mark was over-stamped but I'm 95% sure it's the earliest MOSELEY mark, dating it to the earliest part of the 19th century. It's likely 200 years old and completely usable. An excellent example.

Interesting and Excellent Moving Fillister made by E. Smith.
This is an American moving fillister made by Ezekiel Smith who worked in the mid 19th century in and around Rehoboth, MA. The plane has two obvious and unusual features. First, the escapement is a circular center escapement most commonly found in rabbet planes. This is the first fillister I can recall with such an escapement. The other interesting feature is the fence which is made of solid boxwood. Again, it's the first plane I can recall with such a fence. It's a high quality plane with a dovetailed nicker and adjustable brass depths top. The maximum width of cut is 1 3/8in wide. The blade is in decent shape with plenty of life left in it and only the lightest pitting scattered about. The working corner is reinforced with hammerhead boxing which is in solid shape. It'll make a fine worker with a minimum of effort spent tuning.

Excellent British Moving Fillister.
This is a high quality British fillister made by Henry Osborn, a Southhampton planemaker who worked in the late 19th century and into the early 20th. It's a high quality plane with a dovetailed nicker and adjustable brass depth stop. The nicker is unusual in that it is oversized compared to most. This makes it very easy to handle, set, and unset. I dig it. The maximum width of cut is 1in wide. The blade is in excellent shape with plenty of life left in it and no pitting at all. . The working corner is reinforced with boxing which is in solid shape. It'll make a fine worker with a minimum of effort spent tuning.

Early Flat Ovolo Molding Plane b Hathersich, Manchester.
This plane was made by George Hathersich in Manchester, England between 1797-1843 according to Goodman. The plane exhibits design elements of early British planes including the deep cove on the step and heavy, flat chamfers. It has an especially steep middle pitch blade for hardwoods. The plane has been used quite a bit as evidenced by the short blade, but there is little wear and no damage. It's clearly been appreciated and well cared-for. While the blade is short there is some good useful life left in it. It's a common profile and a replacement blade will be easy to come up with without too much bother should you use up the original. An early, quite useful molder.

9in British Ebony Bevel.
This is a good, usable bevel. It is unmarked. I'm pretty sure it's ebony. It's black, has no grain, and a good heft to it.The blade is locked with a screw which requires an extra tool to use it, but it'll lock it more securely as any other "quick" adjusting bevel out there. Good looking & useful.

Super Rare 3/16in Dado Molding Plane by T. Tileston, Boston.
This is an outstanding dado plane made in the early 1800s in Boston. It has Tileston's Front Street mark as shown in AWP-IV. The plane cuts a tiny 3/16in dado, the smallest I can recall seeing. The heel is marked "1/8 1/16" maybe Tileston didn't have a 3/16in stamp? The width between the nicker blades, which is what determines the width of the dado, is clearly 3/16in. The plane is perfectly made and in exceptionally well preserved condition. It's deed straight. The thin body was never outfitted with a depth stop for obvious reasons.. It's a great example of this rare size in outstanding condition. Perfectly usable if you so chose.

Early 3/4in Side Bead Molding Plane.
This is a early-appearing molding plane with flat chamfers, deep gouge cuts at the transition points, a round wedge finial, and a distinct cove that runs along the step. I can't see a maker's mark but I'd guess late 18th century and probably British in make. It has light wear and a good, clean blade.
